When you're considering the kind of vehicle you need for your active life around New City, Nanuet, or Pearl River, NY, you should look into two popular and capable SUVs: the 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee and the 2022 Dodge Durango.

The Rockland CDJR team goes over the similarities and differences between the Jeep Grand Cherokee vs. Dodge Durango below. Continue reading to figure out which vehicle is better suited for your needs.

Jeep Grand Cherokee vs Dodge Durango Capability

Whether you're driving over trails or hauling cargo, you need a sturdy and powerful SUV. Both the Jeep Grand Cherokee and the Dodge Durango deliver.

You can pair either vehicle with one of three available drivetrains. On the Dodge Durango, you'll have these engine options:

  • 3.6L Pentastar® V6 engine: 295 horsepower, 260 lb-ft of torque
  • 5.7L HEMI® V8 engine: 360 horsepower, 390 lb-ft of torque
  • 6.4L HEMI® V8 engine: 475 horsepower, 470 lb-ft of torque

The Jeep, on the other hand, offers these powertrains:

  • 3.6L Pentastar® V6 engine:  293 horsepower, 260 lb-ft of torque
  • 5.7L HEMI® V8 engine: 357 horsepower, 390 lb-ft of torque
  • 2.0L hybrid engine: 375 horsepower, 470 lb-ft of torque

As you'll notice, only the Jeep Grand Cherokee offers a hybrid engine. However, the Durango does offer more powerful options.

As a result, the Durango has a higher maximum towing capacity at 8,700 pounds when properly equipped. In comparison, the Grand Cherokee has a maximum towing capacity of 7,200 pounds.

However, you do have a choice of three available 4x4 drivetrains for the Jeep, including:

  • Quadra-Trac I®
  • Quadra-Trac II®
  • Quadra-Drive® II with an electronic limited-slip rear differential

Overall, these two vehicles shine in different ways. While the Durango offers stronger engines and a higher towing capacity, the Grand Cherokee has a fuel-efficient hybrid option and multiple off-road-capable drivetrains.

Jeep Grand Cherokee vs Dodge Durango Interiors

Besides their strength and capabilities, the Dodge Durango and the Jeep Grand Cherokee also boast accommodating interiors.

Both models offer seating for up to seven passengers among three rows, with each row folding flat to fit a variety of cargo. Within the Jeep, you'll have a maximum 84.6 cubic feet of cargo capacity. The Dodge offers a  bit more with a maximum 85.1 cubic feet.

In both vehicles, you'll also have plenty of available amenities and comforts, like:

  • Front heated and ventilated seats
  • Heated second-row seats
  • Wireless phone charging

The Grand Cherokee, though, offers several additional conveniences you won't find in the Durango. These include 16-way power adjustable front seats with massage function. Plus, you can change the mood from exciting to zen with just the press of a button thanks to the available multicolor ambient LED lighting feature. 

Moreover, while both models offer an available 10.1-inch infotainment touchscreen, only the Grand Cherokee gives your copilot their own screen. This additional screen allows them to stream their favorite movies and shows on Amazon Fire TV and listen to their music with wireless headphones.
